Sugar Plum Faeries Wear Boots


Every winter we gasp in amazement as the dancers in the Nutcracker Suite ignore the laws of gravity and physics to bring us the story of toys coming to life on Christmas night. For many of us, it just isn't the holidays till we've seen the ballet.


We all know that it takes years of grueling  practice to make those movements seem so effortless. At the end of the day, the ballerina ... or Sugar Plum faerie... heads home on the subway wearing something warm and comfortable.


I combined elements from two of my sponsoring events for this blog...
The EXCLUSIVE Sugarplum Dress from Oubliette is currently available @ Winter's Hollow. Available in 6 colors and a fatpack, there are coordinated ballet shoes available as well [not shown here]. The tee I'm wearing under the track suit is the Oubliette hunt gift. [See my Dark Blog for more information about the Winter's Hollow Hunt]

The Jayda track suit from Ana Markova and Marta Boots from Lindy can be found @ Designer Showcase. The track suit is available in 6 colors sold separately. To tell you the truth, this faerie is more likely to be wearing a track suit than a lacey dress!

Ticket to Bedford Falls


No matter how far we wander in this big ol' world,  part of us longs to go home again. Of course, home is never exactly as we remember it, but we still long to be there. If we're very fortunate, not only will home still be there, but Dad will be waiting to give us a ride from the station.

My travel outfit is Wonderful Life from I.M. Collection, available @ Designer Showcase. 
Coat/top, Skirt and a necklace (not shown - Mom always said not to wear jewelry when travling) included for each color; coordinated boots available separately. The Yasmina hair is from Tameless, available in 3 color huds (naturals shown), also @ Designer Showcase.

Designer Showcase December 5-31


It's December, that wondrous month when we all try just a little harder to be kind to each other and when our inner child can come out to play without incurring criticism.

It's easy to get so busy running around and preparing for the big day that you loose sight of the real gifts of the season. Spend time with those you love, both in SL and in that RL place.
The most precious gift you can ever give is the gift of yourself fully engaged and happy.
Happy Holidays!
